Description: We would randomly print various sheets while setting up each run to check for ink coverage anddepth of image impression. Sometimes we would mis-register 1 or 2 when starting a day's poster and they would just go into the stack of makeready sheets. We would constantly mix them up to get some variety, taking a couple from the top, middle, and bottom. Some may have two overlays and some may have 6.

Once we start to divide them to include in an order we will try to pull a good variety together. In a stack of 15 you should get a few that have a bit of simplicity and others that are really complicated. The photo above wasn't set up at all. We just took the cards, divided them into some stacks and threw some down.
